Security Systems and Homeowners Insurance

Security You Need to Take Seriously

The chance that you will face a burglary in your lifetime, either at home or office are increasing every day. Millions of American homeowners still haven’t made the decision to employ a home security system, and time is running out. Most of us take our security for granted, not really concerned that the locks we employ might not be enough to keep the bad guys out and keep our valuables and loved one in, safely. But what kind of security system do most of us need and what will it cost. Most security companies are only interested in the month to month monitoring fees and are not really concerned with installing high tech security shields that thwart would-be burglars to begin with. ESI, Emergency Systems Inc. understands that investing in a commercial grade security system is the beginning defense every business and high-end residential customer should employ. It all starts with the right system, one that is expandable to include additional security measures if the needs arise and a system that has a penetration rating far exceeding lessor grade security measures.

Do Security Systems Really Lower Insurance Costs?

Every homeowners insurance policy is different and some policies have reduced premiums based on security systems employed. One thing is consistent among all homeowners insurance policies, and that is the rate or number of claims filed has an immediate effect on the raising of premiums. Security systems that prevent break-ins and claims filed, to recover costs have a drastic effect on costs. So, the better question is does a security system reduce claims because they inhibit burglars from stealing items covered by insurance policies. The answer of course is Yes. Additionally, if a burglary is committed and the police can recover items stolen because a security shield has been able to identify the perpetrators, claims to recover the insured value of property never needs to be filed.
